16 Kildare Street, Dublin 2

Private View: Thursday 13th June, 6 to 8pm

Taylor Galleries is delighted to present Landfall, an exhibition of new paintings by Dublin-based artist Louise Neiland which opens with a private view on Thursday 13 June from 6 to 8pm. The exhibition is Neiland's first solo show with the gallery, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.

Landfall is the moment in time when a storm reaches the coast from the ocean and breaks over land.

It is difficult to predict an exact time when this will happen. When it does occur, the event is marked by a slight shift, a momentary darkness, a flux, a space where everything is motionless, and yet time passes.

We can recall points in time in the sequence of events, when they occur; their duration; their after-effects. Gradually, memory becomes intertwined with the present, giving us both real and imagined markers in our landscape.

Born in Dublin, Louise studied at Camberwell College of Art, London and later at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin from where she received her BA and MFA in Fine Art (Painting) in 1991 and 2008 repectively. She has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions around Ireland and has been the recipient of various bursaries and awards. Neiland's work is represented in both private and corporate collections and her commissioned work includes a piece on permanent display in Dublinia in Christchurch, Dublin.
